So I'm the person on the right. obviously. I'm Ruth, and I when I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I certainly didn't scrimp on the research. I spent hours looking into it. But three days into the free trial, I knew immediately that this was legitimate and it was for me. I had to be involved. So I dug in.
I am a mum, as you can tell, but I used to work in marketing in Central London for years. It was a hard slog, long hours and lots of 'client socialising'. But what no one told me is that when you have kids everything changes.. more than you can imagine! And now the thought of an hour and half commute into London to work 12 hour days has absolutely no appeal. So I wanted to do something I can do from home, so that I can pick my kids up from school - that's my dream.
I have already set up an online business designing personalised typographic prints which I have enjoyed but to be honest it hasn't been that successful in terms of sales volumes. The main thing for me was to work from home, so I stumbled across Wealthy Affiliate, entirely by accident. So now I am concentrating on building a couple of affiliate sites and still progressing with my typographic prints, so I am super busy.
But I am loving every minute of my journey here. It's the best decision I have ever made!
